Beautiful Mehandi Design History

I have been asked to share information about what I know about the art of Henna application to the body which is called "Mehndi". Its is believed that once you have your Mehndi art done you will be safe from The Evil Eye, Black Magic, harmful Genies, and a host of other dangerous supernatural forces. The art of applying Henna (Mehndi) dates back at least 5,000 years. It originated in Egypt and the Middle East, and was spread to India by the Muslims. The most traditional use of Mehandi was during special occasions and celebrations; weddings, births, deaths, even first menstruations. At these life events, women were thought to be most vulnerable to evil spirits and the application of Henna was a form of protection for them. Individual designs have specific meanings; a few of which are luck, health, fertility, sun, moon, etc. The Art of Mehndi has now gainied popularity in the United States, with celebrities such as Rihana, Madonna, Demi Moore, and The Artist Occasionally Known as Prince displaying their Henna tattoos.The cost of a Mehndi tattoo starts around $13.00 to $35.00 for more detailed larger designs. The process is quite fun and lasts 2 to 4 weeks depending your personal chemistry and what types of soap is used to wash the area. Generally the inside of hands and the feet stain darker.
